Hear the sound of the Lotus Evija Hypercar and how it was created

Categories :


Now that we see more and more electric cars on the road, we’re going to move away from the exhaust notes and talk about the electric motors notes instead. While this may be controversial to many, it actually opens the door to some very interesting sounds. Take the Lotus Evija, for example. This new electric hypercar has a sound developed by British music producer Patrick Patrikios. Inspired by the engine note of the Type 49 racing car, he developed a new sound for the Evija.

“I adjusted the playback speeds and Type 49 digital filtering to create a sound for the Evija – it was a very organic process,” said Patrikios. “We all wanted something that created an emotional connection between the car and the driver. Sound is extremely influential in creating and shaping emotions to enrich that bond that is such an important part of the lotus experience. “
